Neah Bay tug: Former commissioner Rhea Miller deserves our thanks

I read with interest about the tug and barge, carrying diesel and jet fuel, which lost propulsion close to the San Juan Islands July 28.

The news that the Neah Bay tug came to the rescue and helped to avert any damage to our island shores brought to mind how tirelessly our former commissioner, Rhea Miller, worked for the placement of the tug to protect our local waters and shorelines.

I think she should be given yet another vote of thanks for thinking in the long term in the face of all of the criticism of her efforts at the time.
